Hammonasset State Park

I bet you thought I'd given up sketching!! NOT! It's just that we've had such rainy, dreary weather for so long I haven't been able to get out and I wasn't motivated to sketch indoors. Today we finally had sunshine and I made the most of it painting and sketching all afternoon. These are all done at a local state park, one of my favoriten places to go. All in the large moleskine, with uniball vision pen and Yarka watercolors. You can check out the painting I did today at Art & Life my plein air blog.

Jan I have had your blog bookmarked for a while, lovely stuff. I noticed that yu used the Yarka paints and i had asked my son to get some while in USA but he didnt, how do you like them? I know Dick Blick has them but our exchange rate isnt the best, which set did you get? hard to tell colours from their catalog. If you like could you email me at Penny in Victor Harbor South Australia

Hi Jan,

Just browsing around and found your sketches inspiring. And freeing my mind, more appreciative of open spaces.

Am a professor of advertising at the Fine Arts Department of UST. Not a visual artist, but being exposed to young minds inside the classroom has helped me appreciate art more everyday.

Keep on creating!

These sketches are absolutely just what I love and I'm subscribing to this blog via Bloglines immediately! I'd only been familiar with your other blog, which is also, of course, spectacular! Yay!!

Hi Laura,

Yes this is the other stuff I like to do. Ever since I discovered moleskine's I've become a sketching addict LOL.

I got a set of Yarks's with 10 colors in round pans....though I don't think they are making this one any more. They have a new 12 pan set out. I love them, they are semi-moist, with juicy color!
